5 Cutest Dog Breeds Ever!

Hungarian Puli
The Hungarian Puli Dogs identifiable feature is that it resembles a Mop!
These are high maintenance doggies. With furs that are wiry like these requires constant grooming and would take a day to completely dry after washing.
It's ideal to be cared for in cooler climates and must be protected from heat.
(This mostly applies to all thick haired doggies!)
Caring for these fun-loving Puli's can be very much rewarding as they are smart, animated, affectionate and loyal to their masters.
They are also excellent Sheepdogs that are wary of strangers, watchful and courageous. Puli's stand about 16-17" and mostly weigh up to 25-35 lbs.
They live to about 13 years at most.



Bichon Frise
A Bichon Frise (pronounced Bee-shon Free-zay)
(Which in French means curly lap dog) is larger than the Maltese, non-shedding and like many furry dogs requires daily grooming.
They weigh around 10-18 lbs and stands 9-15".
These bright little dogs are suitable for people with allergies, as they are bred to be hypoallergenic.
The only thing you need to work on would be the frequent trimming, brushing, and bathing (once a month).
Bichon Frise are definite companion dogs, obedient, gentle mannered and affectionate. They get along well with little kids and are fine in the company of other animals.


The Chow Chows are most commonly kept as a companion dog.
They are extremely loyal to its own family and will bond tightly to its master. The Chow typically shows affection only with those it has bonds to, so new visitors to the home should not press their physical attention upon the resident Chow as it will not immediately accept strangers in the same manner as it does members of its own pack.
The two most distinctive features of the Chow Chow are its blue-black tongue and its almost straight hind legs, which makes it walk rather stilted.  The ears are small and rounded and there is a huge ruff behind the head, which gives it a lion like appearance

Most Chow Chows like to dominate other dogs, but in contrast, they are quite good with children. They must be extensively socialized when very young to combat potential over-protectiveness as an adult. They need firm training right from the start. Their personality is mainly due to their past treatment.

History: In China the Chow Chow was used for guarding things and for pulling carts. Its flesh was eaten and there was a market for its fur. This sad history, plus the lack of a single master (due to being a working dog) has dampened the personality of this extremely beautiful dog. It thus sometimes appears introverted, detached, and indifferent. Breeders have been working very hard to breed a Chow with a "family" temperament and with some success too. A well-bred and well-socialized Chow Chow can be just that - an excellent family dog.

Regular brushing of the long coat is important to maintain the lifted, standing-out look. Chow chows stand to about 18-22" and can weigh around 45-70 lbs
They can live up to 15 years like the Japanese Spitz.

Old English Sheepdog
The Old English Sheepdog is a large dog, often used as a herding dog in farms.
They are recognizable with their shaggy coats and fur covering their faces.

The Old English Sheepdog is an athletic animal, filled with clownish energy, and therefore requires regular exercise or a job to do. Although affectionate with his family, he may try to herd people or other objects by gently bumping them.
Their height are about 24" and can weigh around 101 lbs for larger ones.

With wide open spaces being the ideal setting for an Old English Sheepdog, the breed is a natural fit in a rural setting, such as working on a farm; although they are perfectly comfortable with a suburban or urban lifestyle (with proper exercise). Their remarkable, inherent herding instincts, sense of duty, and sense of property boundaries may be nurtured and encouraged accordingly, or subdued by their owners. Old English Sheepdogs should not be deprived of the company and the warmth of people. They are an adaptable, intelligent dog of even disposition, with no sign of aggression, shyness or nervousness.


Japanese Spitz
The Japanese Spitz is a bold, loyal, active, playful, affectionate and happy companion. He seems to be smiling all the time! He thrives on being with his owner, and wants to go with you wherever you go. He can sit and warm himself in your lap, but he is not the kind of dog who sleeps all day--he's lively and full of fun.
(with the exception of Eve, she sleeps all day and only energetic around eating time)
I think she picks up on whatever the family does. Since we are very laid back she's laid back as well. She doesn't bark a lot only when she senses strangers in front of the house. Spitz are also very easy to housebreak.

The Japanese Spitz are generally good with other dogs and pets, especially if they're raised with them as a puppy. They are good with children, and has the patience and playfulness to be a companion to young ones. Around strangers they are slightly suspicious, and will bark loudly at visitors until they get to know them (very true).
Approach them very gently rather than rushed toward.
They are a good watchdog because they are very protective of their family, and has keen senses along with a loud and forceful bark.
The Japanese Spitz can sometimes bark too much and must be taught to quiet down on command. They're is easy to train and learns quickly. Eager to please, but can occasionally be independent and demonstrate a strong will of their own.
You must be fair and consistent to train a Japanese Spitz.

Despite the appearance of the Japanese Spitz’ pure white coat they are in fact a low maintenance breed. They are a very clean dog and do not have a doggy odor, due to the texture of their coat mud and dirt fall off or can be brushed out very easily. Provided they are kept well groomed, they should only require a bath every couple of months (common sense prevailing). They have a major coat shed once a year, but like most dogs shed minimum all year round

The Japanese Spitz is 12 to 15 inches tall (to shoulders) and weighs 11 to 22 pounds. He has a medium-length, double coat consisting of a straight outer coat and a short, soft, thick undercoat. His coat color is white.

I don't know if this applies to other dogs as well but the Spitz can be very sensitive at times and will demonstrate rebellion by not eating or hiding away in corners.
Take Blanca (or Eve) for example, when we scold her or cut/shave her hair (which she does not approve) she hides away as if ashamed to go out. They can be weird at times because Eve gets nightmares all the time.

All of these dogs live to about 12-15 years enough to add so many memorable events in a humans life!
